5th Annual Puget Sound Green Infrastructure Summit:

Call for Abstracts is now closed, however late submissions are still welcome.

To submit an abstract or idea, please reach out to us directly via email.


This year’s theme is “Growing Green Infrastructure: Impacts and Intersectionalities When Scaling up”.

Loosely defined, we are hoping to hear your stories and lessons learned as you grow your efforts in green infrastructure and discover opportunities and challenges related to that growth. As green infrastructure grows, issues like “green gentrification” and displacement, workforce development, equitable access for incentive programs, designing and maintaining for equity across neighborhoods, asset on-boarding for maintenance staffing and budget needs are on all our minds. In addition, there seem to be more opportunities to collaborate and plan with fields like transportation and affordable housing.
